Valentines Ideas For Kids ~ Easy idea to make the whole month special

Make the whole month of February fun for your family by doing a “heart attack” on their bedroom door. Each day you write a little note telling them something you love about them, or why they are special.  You can write them all yourself, or make it a family event  and have everyone write a heart each day.  I thought this might me a fun idea to start at FHE (family home evening) tonight. Each Monday we try and have a few hours of family time,  I thought we could have the kids cut out hearts and decorate them… then I can write them each a special note on them each night. So simple and easy, but so important to help build their self esteem and let them know how loved they are.

Coconut Oatmeal Brownies, Quick and easy way to jazz up a plain brownie mix, jpg

Coconut Oatmeal Brownie Quick and Easy ~ Box brownies turned into a SUPER STAR recipe

My daughter loves to cook and for being 9 years old she is really good at it.  Her favorite thing to cook is brownies.  She had made a few batches from scratch but likes to make the boxed ones better.  Less prep work and tend to turn out better.  She likes to try putting new things in them to see how they turn out… coconut and oatmeal seem to be our families favorites.   My sister in law shared her recipe with us it is SO GOOD.

 You  just take a standard box of brownies (any brand will do) and jazz it up a bit with a few extra ingredients, to make  chocolaty brownie that are sure to make your family smile.

Make the brownies per the package instructions (normally requires eggs, oil and water). But also add:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup M&M’s sprinkle them on top before baking.

Mix up, pour in a pan and bake per box instructions.  Simple as that you have a treat that looks  and taste amazing.

Jalapeno Popper Wontons recipe, Quick and easy perfect finger food for a party #Poppers, #Wontons, #recipeJalapeno Popper Wontons ~ Quick Easy Finger Food Recipe

These Jalapeno Popper Wontons are a great finger food perfect for any party or gameday.  You can make the filling up a head of time and fry them up right before the guest arrive.  Each popper only takes about 40 seconds to cook so they are hot and ready to eat in no time! You can cook them in a deep fryer  or a pan of oil on the stove top.

Jalapeno Popper Wontons recipe, Quick and easy perfect finger food for a party #Poppers, #Wontons, #recipe

Recipe yields 50 wantons

You will need:

  • 8oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup mexi blend cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning
  • 2 jalapeno peppers seeded and diced (to make them hotter 3-4 peppers)
  • 1 package 50 count small wonton  wraps

Jalapeno Popper Wontons recipe, Quick and easy perfect finger food for a party #Poppers, #Wontons, #recipe

First step is to mix the cheeses, ranch and peppers together in a bowl. You can even make the filling the day before if needed or make it and  use it right away… either works just fine.  Open your wonton wraps lay each wrap out onto a flat surface. Put a small drop of filling into the middle of each wrap. Get a small bowl of water, dip your finger into the water and wet the edge of the wonton. Fold in half, the water will SEAL the edges together.

Fry the wontons in oil over medium-high heat.  They cool really fast, 15-50 seconds on each side, you will need to flip them once for even cooking.  Take out of the hot oil, drain on a paper towel.  If you want you can even bake them, but I prefer the fried ones!Jalapeno Popper Wontons recipe, Quick and easy perfect finger food for a party #Poppers, #Wontons, #recipe
